Wendy Williams has once again passed the buck on her talk show duties. The 57-year-old television personality isn't coming back to her syndicated program until at least March, and that's IF she even returns.
The Wendy Williams Show made the announcement on Thursday, confirming their absent host is going MIA for at least another month amid rumors she "can't dress herself" and plans to "fire" the entire staff.
Several guests hosts have been invited back to sit-in for Wendy. Among them is Sherri Shepherd.
Other guest hosts for the month of February to March 4 include Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Michael Rapaport, Bevy Smith, and Terrence J.
When Page Six asked Wendy's rep if there's a possibility she won't return this season, they scoffed, "Don’t overreach.”
But RadarOnline.com told ya first — producers are eyeing Shepherd to replace Wendy. She keeps showing up when Williams doesn't. According to sources, it's only a matter of time until something permanent is made.
Wendy has been MIA from her talk show since last year before being hospitalized in September. According to an insider, her health issues are getting worse by the day.
“The spark is gone. That Wendy, who for ten years had that spark in her eyes, that cheeky grin and that little wink is not the same now," a source told The Sun.

Wendy's decline is allegedly so bad that she "has days where she needs help eating, getting out of bed and getting dressed."
"She’s not always functioning like she used to be," the insider insisted.
Earlier this week, it was reported that "paranoid" Wendy wants to clean house.
"Wendy believes the staff have all betrayed her and if she comes back, she wants to completely clean house. She actually wants to fire the whole staff," a source stated. “She is paranoid about the staff gossiping about her and delusional in the idea that that cleaning house could even happen."
They also claimed she's "trying to hold people hostage" by "saying I will only return if everyone is fired."
Of course, Wendy's rep is adamant that she'll return to her namesake talk show.
